Cadiz, KY (PRWEB) May 28, 2014 -- Sex, drugs and alcohol are the demons of yesteryear. Today’s generation battles much larger monsters. Children are now the living, walking result of each of the small forces that shape and alter their lives: divorce, learning disabilities, and excessive drug use and alcohol consumption.
“Absence of concern for the welfare and health of others, especially children, whether on the part of individuals or governments, is evil,” Conver said.
Inspired by a lifetime in education and a background in the military, Mike Conver’s thrilling “Small Forces” uses a character-driven storyline to examine universal social issues, highlighting the influence on youth and future generations. The action novel demonstrates the consequences of even the smallest decisions in life, surveying the family structure and constructs of society and global culture. “Small Forces” implores readers to finally consider and address the root of societal downfall and dysfunction: each of us.
